WHO I AM…….AS ONE OF GOD’S WOMEN!!
We are going to spend some time on this one. It is immense! Huge! We will take a look at ourselves through the eyes of God’s Word and see whether we are “lost or found”, “sad or joyful”, “feeling like a nobody or realizing that we are a somebody”, “feeling that no one cares about us or we are being cared for eternally”, “feeling weak or strong”…..Is there A-N-YO-N-E at all that cares and that we belong to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????!!!!!!!!!
I am unique – Psa. 139:13
“For You formed my inward parts; you wove me in my mother’s womb”
What does this say to us? God does not lie. He does not need to tell us something that is not true. Before we were even made, He knew us. He is very intimate with us. There is nothing about us that He does not know about. That means we were thoroughly taken care of back in the time when we were formed and He cared for us until the time He wanted us to enter into the world. Sounds like a very caring Heavenly Father who will never forget a single thing about us.
Thank you Father God for this astounding sentence from Your Love letter to me. You, with Your own hands, had me in Your mind, designed me, made me centuries ago. You knew exactly what you wanted me to be and to do. Thank You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
I am loved – Jere. 31:3
“The Lord appeared to her from afar, saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness”
We are unique. And now we see we are loved. This is Agape Love. One way, self sacrificing love. He sees all of our flaws, all of our weaknesses, all of the times we let our tempers flare. He sees all of our sins. Thanks to Friend Eve we have baggage. But even so, even with everything that is scarred, He knows it all. He knows that we do not look now as we did when He was creating us but in spite of it ALL He loves us unconditionally. He will never ever leave us or forsake us.
Thank you Father God. To know that nothing that I have done – all the sins I have committed knowingly and unknowingly – has deterred Your great love, mercy, grace and peace. The stamina of all that You are is beyond belief. Awesome. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
I was created with a purpose – Jere. 29:11 (This is one of my life verses)
“I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil. Plans to give you a hope and a future”
Along with being unique and loved He even had in mind for each of us a plan which was good and would give us hope and a future. He had it all planned out. Can you fathom such a thing!
There are no two snowflakes alike. There are no two women alike. Everyone with a plan. That purpose for you is still there and as long as you live He will be guiding you along the way. Life will have many hiccups along the way but we are never to give up. Never to turn our backs on the One who has given us everything that we can think of or claim for ourselves.
Thank you Father God! As You gave thought to me centuries ago, You formed every little detail in my little body that as yet was not formed but You knew it all. You had a plan that no one can destroy, add to or take away from. You then loved me unconditionally and all the while creating what You wanted of me each day of my life, each hour, each minute, each second. You gave me Your all in my creation. I give my all back to You right now. Wanting You to take me..breath through me..live through me..give me minute by minute direction and instruction through Your Holy Spirit so that my life will not have been a waste from Your divine mind. All glory and honor and power belong to You. Thank You Father. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
I am precious – 1 Cor. 6:20
“For you have been bought with a price, therefore glorify God with your body”
Don’t you stagger at that sentence. Bought with a price: the life of God’s Son, given for each of us, willingly, no question about it. God loved us so much as He had developed us and loved us and given us a purpose to live. He was/is limitless in His offer to us.
Thank You Father God for reminding me of the awful, terrible, lonely price that You so gladly gave to have me in Your kingdom when eternity begins the new chapter. In another place in Your great Love Letter to me, I remember reading that You loved the world SO MUCH…... I don’t understand…I can’t comprehend that depth of a love that is so self sacrificing and given so freely that I might live eternally. Give me a heart of understanding right now and eyes to see and a mind to think with. I want to be all that YOU want me to be. Nothing more. Nothing less. Nothing else. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
Think on these and pray them into your life. You are some one. You were detailed and a copyright attached to you way back when, in God’s Workshop. You are one of a kind. There are no cookie cutter images of you. There is a Master puzzle somewhere and every believer has their own piece. You are important. You are a part of the total Master Puzzle.
Unique….Loved….Purpose….Precious. Oh – – there is more. Much more. Take these four and run them around your mind before you go to sleep at night and let the Heavenly Father know how grateful you are that you are one of His. You ARE one of a kind!!!!
Til Monday then, basking in the Father’s unbelievable, unlimited love of us.
